A Bottle Or Two
For my money if you can find a blend containing a drop or two of Syrah and Carmenere with Cab. Sauv. and/or Merlot for less than $20. BUY IT. This was a very good bottle of vino. Thank you, Chile. If only I could afford to visit. 3/5/15...I believe win...

With this number, the Mendoza Bodega Norton has come up with a clear winner in both quality and value. We have a deep, dense and powerful wine dominated by the plummy, blackcurrant flavors of the 3 principal cepages used in the blend. The Malbec lend...

Dark and rich red color to this wine. The nose straight out the bottle shows oaky chocolate notes with rich raspberry and black raspberry aromas. In the mouth this wine has firm tannis that are soft and lush with a palate showing wound up black raspber...
|Winery:||Altos las Hormigas|
|Region:||Argentina » Mendoza|
A mild malbec with a faint nose and a bright, inoffensive flavor, quite a good substitute for a cheap bottle of Cahors but likely a touch too acidic for fruit lovers. The key is to leave it open for a day or two – then the wine takes on a velvety yet s...
|Winery:||Betts & Scholl|
|Region:||Australia » South Australia » Barossa » Eden Valley|
A lovely nose that blend citrus, lime blossom and apricot notes with machine oil notes. In the mouth this is quite rich yet very acid driven and dry. It's starts of with a rather grapefruity attack that is cut by assertive and mouthwatering mineral ton...

I received a complimentary bottle of this when I was staying at the Hotel Lucia in Portland, I remember it being such a good wine, I ordered a second. Not that same night. I think they went to twist cap the next year or two after the 2002 when I found ...

I thought on the first sip on New Years Day, 2011, I was drinking hard cider and didn't like it much, but Mary loved it. So the next day when we finished the bottle while unChristmasing the house, I came around some to her way of thinking. While we bot...
|Winery:||Produttori del Barbaresco|
|Region:||Italy » Piemonte » Barbaresco|
A lovely Barbaresco with solid acidity and a cool, composed character featuring crisp cherry, soil and dried floral aromatics. the wine is medium bodied and fairly elegant with small but precise tannins and a taut backend that leads to a long, sneaky f...
|Winery:||Lavradores de Feitoria|
Intensely aromatic showing a bit of toffee, big bold black fruit, spicy notes, bit of sage, sweet black fruit that shows some emerging complexity. Open, juicy, big and pure on the palate, this is packed with black cherry, black berry fruit in a fairly ...

I had a glass or two of this last night and must say WOW. A little meat on the nose, it was incredibly smooth in the mouth. It had a nice plum flavor. This was such a well rounded wine I will probably order more if they don't run out. The good news...

The Max Reserva Cab 2006, I confess, a buy I made based on a 90 point rating sticker on the bottle - the first time. I have gone back for more and would say the rating is well-deserved. Dried fruit and cedar on the nose, rich red fruit & cab profile with good viscosity and tannic backbone on opening. Everything gets more supple & luscious after ... Read More

This asti is wonderful ! The taste is clean, crisp and not overly sweet. I always have a a bottle or two available at home to offer a glass to friends, when they drop by, or simply drink while eating poundcake or fruits such as strawberries or peaches with lunch or after dinner. Read More
I have been trying to track down a syrah/shiraz for my husband. It is Balthazar (Balthasar). I am hoping to order several bottles online. This particular wine was under $15- per bottle. He found it online maybe one - two months ago, but I can't find it anywhere (good research librarian that I am...) If anyone has a source for this wine or can re... Read More
I just received a selection of wine and am dying to try a bottle. I have always thought that you should leave any wine to settle for about 3 days after transport before drinking it.It this true? How much would it impair the taste?Does anybody out there know the answers?Thanks Read More
After much anticipation Snooths OTBN was apon us! We were meeting in the wonderfully elegant Deco Room at North Square Restaurant here in New York City to celebrate, well, celebrating! That is, of course, the point of OTBN. Begun a decade ago precisely in order to give people the reason to celebrate and open that special bottle that had always s... Read More
Last week the U.S. Department of Agriculture awarded a $3.9 million grant to develop a mechanical sprayer. The chemicals used in vineyards have become so toxic that they are considered a health hazard for humans. In other words, the government is trying to find a way to make spraying highly toxic chemicals on grapes more convenient. And we haven... Read More
I am fairly certain the correct way to store wine is on it's side. However, many wine stores stock wine standing upright.Is it ok to store wine standing upright? If not, how long can wines hold up if stored upright?I am ssuming traditional corks here, not synthetic, or screw cap.Thanks! Read More
